Photoshop and InDesign!!

My computer is my #1 tool definitely, but would have been totally lost without those programs to help me put things together. I swear if I didn’t already have carpal tunnel before the wedding…with all the time I spent on my computer I definitely would have by the time it was over!

Storage containers- like the ones designed for scrapbook pages- to hold everything together. But I’m an OCD organizer so maybe it’s just me:)

Martha Stewart punches- they have held up far better than other brand

And of course, I couldn’t do anything without my computer and printer!

Modge Podge!  Sponge brushes, hot glue gun, MS Publisher (didn’t have Photoshop then, sad day) and a ruler.  I’m old school : )

Powerpoint, adobe illustrator, and spray paint! I’m spray painting a lot of thrift store finds to add some interest to my decor.

I haven’t used it yet, but I’m in LOVE with my paper cutter with additional scoring blade! It’s all I can do not to cut/score random pieces of mail laying around… really need invitation time to come so I can use it for serious business.

Can someone explain to me how to use adhesive glue spray? Does it leave a sticky film on paper?

@bakerella:Oooh thanks! I’m working on my Save-The-Date Cards right now and literally experimented with like 6 different glues and I’d see the spray glues at the store and debated on using them. I can see how it would work for some things though.
